Watercolor goes from light to dark, right??

Yep. Most of the time. Here is an example that I painted awhile back in beautiful Payne's Gray. If you want to learn how to do this, check out my hour and fifteen minute DVD titled "Portraiture in Payne's Gray. You even get the reference photo in the DVD case so that you can try it. My DVD sells for $55 (includes shipping). Contact me to order by calling my studio (Studio L) at 916-737-2311. I accept check payment only.

This is really good. I've been trying to experiment with watercolors, but I just can't seem to get it right.

Thank you so much, Mr. Pena. Tonal values are everything.

Jessica, Watercolor, like all art mediums take practice, practice, practice. Unlike most mediums, it is hard to correct mistakes.
